I have performed a variety of music in my career including dance, pop, new country, blues, jazz, grunge, progressive, alternative, classic and always straight ahead rock and roll. I joined up with Candye Kane and the Swinging Armadillos, a blues band from San Diego and signed to the Antone's label out of Austin, Texas. I recorded on three of Candye’s cds, "Knockout", "Diva La Grande", and "Swango". The band shared the same bill with such greats as The Neville Brothers, Dr. John, Ben Harper, John Lee Hooker, Johnny Lang and David Lindley to name a few.
My influences are: Steve Smith, Carter Beauford, Vinnie Caliuta, Steve Gadd, Kenny Aronoff, Ringo, Max Weinberg, Steve Farrone, Ian Paice, Liberty DeVito and Buddy Rich to name a few.
It wasn't till 2006 when I discovered my passion for teaching. I love sharing my knowledge as a drummer and performer. I want to pay it forward to the next generation of drummers. I have had great success with a number of students who are now taking their drumming skills to the next level. It gives me great gratification to see my students and ex-students blossom into wonderful and masterful musicians. I hope to continue passing on my knowledge & experiences to the drummers of the future.
